Preview of the High Alps

Following a rest day, the Tour de France resumes on Tuesday with Stage 9 in the Alps. Racers will pedal 126 miles over three high mountains including the final, steepest climb, the Col de la Madeleine. Don’t look for the main contenders to attack her at the top. The finish line is at the bottom in the valley of Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne. The way down will not be for the faint of heart.
